High Plains Invaders

High Plains Invaders is a 2009 SyFy channel science fiction/western film starring James Marsters (Spike from the Buffy TV series). Not a high point in Western civilization but it was fun nonetheless. Like cotton candy. Except cotton candy may actually be a high point in Western civilization.

trailer:



Moria says it "works its way towards a modestly effective and convincing climax and is far better than one might think." DVD Talk hates the woman bounty hunter character (as do I) and calls the film "a fun, albeit clich├ęd, genre-hopping entry in the Maneater Series". FearNet says, "It's little more than War of the Worlds meets High Noon, only a whole lot goofier and quite a bit gorier than that description implies." Rotten Tomatoes doesn't have a critics score, but the audience score is 12%. 12%! I don't think I've seen a lower score.
